One last thing as we wind down on the Star Patch Quilt Along, I am wondering if you wouldn't mind leaving a comment below telling me how you feel the Quilt Along has gone?  I've never hosted one of these before and would love to hear your comments and suggestions so I can keep them in mind for future Quilt Alongs!  It's been fun for me and I hope you have had a great experience as well!

I can't wait to see your quilt tops!!!   Happy quilting!

Star Patch Quilt Along: Week 6

Happy Monday friends!  Welcome to week 6 of the Star Patch Quilt Along!  

With all of your 9-Patches done it's time to move on to the Star.
This week you need to make the Checkerboard block and the 4 Flying-
Geese blocks.  This assignment may take a little more time than the last 4 weeks' assignments 
but it is so fun to see the star come together!

I want to congratulate Jody Watkins for winning the giveaway for week 5.  
She won a notions goodie bag and 10" stacker from Riley Blake Designs!

For this weeks' giveaway, post a photo of your 4 Flying-Geese blocks shaped like a Christmas Tree!  Like this:

Post your photo on Instagram by noon MST on Sunday 12/9/18.  Be sure to use the hashtag #starpatchqal.  Your account must be public.  I will pick a winner from the hashtag pool on Sunday night and the winner will win a set of 6 patterns from me!  

Also, I want to refer you to week 3 if you're confused about the number of 9-Patches we made. Eight 9-Patches are for the pieced quilt back and the cutting instructions were listed in the week 3 blog post.  I will post a tutorial for the quilt back during week 8.

That's it for now friends.
Happy quilting!
